Lenses / Re: Lens repair?
« on: June 15, 2014, 11:04:12 PM »
Hello I would love to offer my experience. I actually sent a canon 28-70 2.8 to midwest camera to have it fixed and they advised against the repair based on the scarcity of parts. The 28-70 2.8 has a common issue of a foggy rear element so look for that too. And I do like midwest camera I just got my 70-200 2.8 back from them. It took a month but it's back and works great. So if you do get it I'd really recommend midwest camera for the late model canon repairs.

Ok thank you for the very detailed reply.  You answered all my questions. I will pass on it and spend my money a better way.  Thanks again!

Hello all saw on my local Craigslist a listing for the camera mentioned in the title and was looking for advice on it.

I saw Kai of DigitalRev using something similar to this http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=38plXCYCvKQ
Any idea if this is a good deal? Is it hard to get film for these? Is it hard to get film developed for this camera? The photos Kai took were pretty cool with this camera and it made me want to try one and sure enough there's someone selling one locally. Thanks guys

Well bummer I've been wanting a calibration system, why did this deal not last longer than a few hours.

Keep the 85 it's far sharper in your test shots than the 70-200. Look at the wood post sharper, given the dof is different still more detail. Plus you said you liked primes better for weddings. You can always fix CA in post btw and if I recall the 5d mark iii does correct CA for canon lenses.

Lenses / Re: Canon's f/1.2's: What is really going on?
« on: April 29, 2014, 10:54:05 PM »
so have we decided adding a few drops of motor oil will keep our lens mounts running smoother and extend their life?
Yes, but don't forget to send the camera and lenses in for an oil change every 3000 mount operations.
Otherwise, there will be a few dozen atoms lost after some years.

Now this is the reason I love this forum! You know if you use synthetic oil on your lens mounts you can go up to 10,000 lens mount operations! I move lenses like a crankshaft to a piston at 9,000 rpms but still no wear!

It's a cheap mono light. You get what you pay for I guess.

I have a 1d mark iii and wondered too but im using SanDisk extreme 16gb 45mbs and 60mbs cf cards and ive used a microcenter 16 anf 32gb class 10 sdhc and they all worked fine. Ive also read that the sd slot was faster than the cf.

Lenses / Re: Found Canon 28-80mm f2.8 and Canon 80-200mm f2.8, thoughts?
« on: December 27, 2013, 01:08:54 PM »
Oh I must have missed the part where you are using it for video. I think you'd be surprised by thr lens if you haven't used it before. It does perform very well. Id use it again but I don't often do video so my 135mm is more useful to me. Its worth checking out in person for sure.

Cool. I may get the 80-200mm only.... Anyone tryied that lens?

Thanks very much for the help

I owned the 80-200 2.8 for years and I really liked it mine was very sharp even at 2.8 and I loved the bokeh. Mine was a little out of alignment I think as it required some micro focus adjusting which resulted in some missed shots also do to the focus being slightly slower than some USM lenses im used to. Its a heavy lens and you have to flip the switch to use manual focus. I really liked it but I sold mine and got a used 135mm f2.0 and wouldn't go back.

Lenses / Re: What chopped off my (Bokeh) balls?
« on: December 09, 2013, 04:48:24 PM »
Isn't it just the armrest of the couch in from of the lights blocking that part of the light from hitting the lens? And the rest are just reflections in the elements of lens or maybe a filter on the front of your lens creating the bike ball cutoff reflection on the other side of the photo.

EOS-M / External Microphone for EOS M
« on: December 02, 2013, 01:09:37 AM »
Good evening I'm starting to do a little more video work with my EOS M and I like using it for video but I find its not getting the audio I want. I'm looking to buy my first external mic but don't know where to start. I want to do some simple instructional videos like how to style so I'm thinking something like a lapel mic or a shotgun if those will work too. Can anyone point me to some good brands or something you already use that would save me time and money testing. Thank you!

Lenses / Re: Canon 10-22 vs. Tokina 11-16
« on: November 27, 2013, 10:48:35 AM »
I've used the tokina 12-24 f4 lens and I loved that lens. Maybe it's not fast enough for photojournalism but it was very sharp in the center and the build was very strong. It seemed pretty wide to me on my 40d back in the day.
